PERRY & DONNA PRATT
Donna and I purchased this property which needed renovation. We have completed the work and now it is time to enjoy San Miguel. We have been in the property rental business for all of our 48 years of marriage. We love to entertain our guests with stories of local interest and explain about the city. You will find us in the garden and requesting you join us for a beverage
Perry purchased this townhome in 2008
Both Casa Dona Maria and Casa Gilberto offer visitors to San Miguel beautifully furnished homes with private outdoor areas set among stunning gardens. This will be your home away from home, welcoming you back after busy days of touring the exceptional offerings of our wonderful city.
Located just minutes from busy Centro Historico, these lovely, quiet homes offer guests to San Miguel the best of both worlds.
Very quite and secure neighborhood. Lovely residential area within a short walk of the downtown area. The Atascadero area is just a few minutes from the restaurants, shops, events and art galleries in Centro Historico.
Many guests also enjoy hiking in the nearby botanical gardens set in a uniquely beautiful ravine extending over 200 acres. This area is within walking distance of Casa Gilberto and Casa Dona Maria.
The residences and streets surrounding our rental homes are among the most beautiful of San Miguel de Allende. Our wonderful location allows for quiet enjoyment of private outdoor areas where guests feel at home during their stay.
For those wishing to travel with friends or extended family, one has the option of renting both homes.
It can be a little intimidating traveling alone, but I felt immediately comfortable when I arrived at 23 Fuentes and was welcomed warmly by Perry and Donna. They have created a very private and lovely spot in San Miguel. It's far enough from Centro to be quiet but close enough to be a 15 minute walk on San Miguel's lovely cobblestoned streets. I can't say enough about what great hosts Perry and Donna were during my stay in March 2012. A lovely bowl of fruit awaited me when I arrived, along with everything for breakfast (actually a fridge full of goodies that lasted through my stay.) They made helpful suggestions for things to see and do and extended a warm invite to cocktails in the evening. They helped me get a real feel for San Miguel. I am already looking forward to the next opportunity to stay with Donna and Perry in SMa!
When we voiced a preference for a secluded and charming "hacienda" for our second visit to San Miguel, a friend suggested we contact Perry and Donna. What a good friend; not only was the quiet location a few minutes from the center city ideal, the lodging itself and the first class treatment extended by our hosts exceeded every expectation. A wonderfully furnished, gated home with private manicured garden provided the perfect balance of relaxation and access to the many charms of lovely Sam Miguel. The Pratt's have seasoned in San Miguel for years and seem to know everyone. This was a tremendous benefit, because they pointed us to the best restaurants, galleries and shops, and frequently served as guide on our explorations. Although we liked our hotel on our first visit, for value and for intimate personal memories of a special time and place, Hacienda Pratt offers a truly special experience.
My wife and I rented Casa Donna Maria for a week in late October. We were there on the Day of the Dead which is a time of celebration and costumes. The town itself has many art galleries, interesting shops, and good places to eat. It has a charming central square overlooking by a cathedral. Our lodgings were excellent and it was a short walk from our lodgings to town center. Our hosts, Donna and Perry, were exceptionally gracious. They gave us guidance as to how to explore the area and actually took us to a botanical garden and some fine restaurants. I can't imagine better hosts-- and we have travelled all over the world. The Pratts have created a wonderful place to stay and make a stay in San Miguel something special.
My husband and I rented Casa Gilberto for the month of February 2015 and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The 2-bedroom home was everything we wanted and had everything we needed. The gardens are lovely. The Pratts (who live next door) are outstanding hosts, welcoming, available as needed, and ever helpful. We enjoyed our daily walk to the centre of town (El Jardin) whick took about 15 minutes, all downhill. After a few days of adjusting to the altitude (SMA is over 5000 feet above sealevel), I started to enjoy the walk back up as well. For those not inclined, taxis to anywhere in San Miguel cost a very affordable 35 pesos. SMA itself is a wonderful place, so much to do, and no need for a car. We warmly recommend Casa Gilberto based on experience, as well as the 2nd smaller property based on looks.
When my husband and I look for places to rent, our number one requirement is to have a peaceful outdoor area to sit and relax from the day's activities and enjoy a cocktail; the Pratts have succeeded! We've only stayed in one of the homes but it could not have been prettier or a more comfortable place to stay. And most important of all, the Pratts are the very most perfect hosts one could possibly wish for; they are there for you! They do everything they possibly can to make one feel comfortable and they treated us like family. They even invited us to join in with them, their other renters, and their personal guests for a drink out on their patio. We love it so much at Casa las Fuentes that we've already made plans to return and stay again with them this winter.”
Organized tours of the botanical garden for the extensive plant coolection and very fine bird watching. One guest recorded 73 birds in two days.
